PHYSICS A most stimulating subject for young minds ……

for 4-year curriculum undergradutes

August 2012

comments on cu physics
Comments on CU Physics
  • CU Physics Programme was reviewed successively by a Review Panel (consisted of members outside physics department) and a Visiting Committee (formed with 3 well-known physicists from top US universities) and received very positive comments
  • CU Physics Programme is one of the few “Excellent” programmes in CUHK
slide3

Build on a Tradition of Excellence…

  • strong commitment to the quality of the physics programme design and teaching.
  • inculcates a broad array of skills and knowledge, graduates are able to rise to professional challenges in a wide variety of jobs.
  • the programme management and overall quality assurance is exemplary.
  • has a deservedly outstanding reputation for the quality of teaching.
  • devote enormoustime and effort to the conception, presentation, and evaluation of their classroom. This is certainly to be commented and should be preserved under any plans to go forward.

Physics at CUHK: 4-year Curriculum

  • Build on the tradition of excellence
  • Designed to deliver Physics Program Learning Outcomes: Knowledge, Professional & Generic Skills, Values&Attitude
  • Two Streams of Study: Physics Stream and Enrichment Stream in Physics
  • 50/53 compulsory units provide solid physics background and basket of skills
  • At least 21/18 elective units provide flexibility in learning to fit to students’ academic plan and career goal
you should choose physics as major of study if you
You should choose Physics as major of study if you
  • are interested in Physics
  • want to explore the mystery of how things work in Nature
  • want to acquire a strong physics background to tackle a wide range of science and engineering problems
how to start
How to start?
  • Declaring in early Year 1 (obtained Level 5 or above in a HKDSE subject (Physics/Combined Science with Physics (Level 5)))
  • Declaring by end of Year 1 (obtained C+ or above in PHYS 1111 (University Physics I))
  • Declaring no later than end of Year 2 (taken (NOT necessarily ALL PASSED) a set of courses, including PHYS 1111 (University Physics I), PHYS 1122 (University Physics II), PHYS 1712 (Physics Laboratory I) and PHYS 2041(University Physics III))
start up study patterns for different hkdse preparations
Start-up study patterns for different HKDSE preparations
  • With 1X Physics

Starts with PHYS 1111 University Physics I

  • With Combined Science (physics component)

Starts with PHYS 1111 University Physics I;

Could also take PHYS 1002 General Physics as a make-up course and then move on to PHYS 1111 University Physics I

  • Without any physics at DSE level

Contact our physics advisors

Starts with PHYS 1001 Essential Physics, then PHYS 1002 General Physics and PHYS 1111 University Physics I
